there’s no reason to want everybody to like you. Do what you want and let whatever happens happen. Some people will love you. Others will hate you. That’s fine.…
Dani (Positively Present) asks,
I can -- we all can -- leave our fingerprints on the world. You're sitting there, reading this, and thinking to yourself, "How can I make a difference? What can I really do that will change the world?"
What kinds of fingerprints do you want to leave behind?
David Cain (Raptitude) said,
Uncertainty seems to only manifest itself as two things: recurring worrisome thoughts, and a certain tension in the abdomen. It’s not a preferable state, but that doesn’t make it unbearable. Uncertainty really doesn’t have any reality other than those two things, and if you can let both of them just happen without sounding the alarm bells, you might see that there’s no emergency at all.
Davina (Shades Of Crimson) said,
I realized that something was happening now. Something was going to happen tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and the day after that. It might be something I’d planned… or not.
Me. And whatever happened, I would deal with whatever something was.
Evelyn Lim (Attraction Mindmap) said,
If you want to make the world a better place, you need to first start with the Man in the Mirror. If you desire positive changes in life, you have to start with yourself.
Glen (Life Dev) said,
So often we get that paralyzing feeling that the world is going to end when something unexpected happens. If you’re going to make it through to see tomorrow, you’ve got to force down that lump in your throat, take command of your nerves and calmly figure out a plan to finish the day.
Glen Allsopp (PluginID) said,
once this event we’ve been looking forward to is upon us, we’re already on the lookout for the next one; the next high. ...
If you can see that most of your life is spent reminiscing the past or awaiting the future, it’s not too late to change.
Havi Brooks (Fluent Self) asks,
There are always going to be some people who are going to throw shoes at you.
How do you/how should you react, when someone throws a shoe at you?
Jeff Nickles (My Super Charged Life) said,
life is too short to wear uncomfortable shoes!
It is odd to me how we will often stick with something that we don’t like and that sometimes even causes us pain and suffering!
Jonathan Mead (Illuminated Mind) said,
Most of our suffering is caused by caring too much about things that don’t really matter. The hand we’re dealt in life is outside of our control. The events and situations we’re placed in our largely beyond our influence. Stop caring about what other people do, what other people think and work within the circle of your influence.
Jonathan Wells (Advanced Life Skills) asks,
Whose approval do we want?
Our primary source of approval needs to be internal rather than external. We need to approve of ourselves in order to feel true inner peace and security.
Lisis (Quest For Balance) asks,
In our desperate desire to be right and to never get hurt again, I wonder how many of us make these stupid and careless mistakes that can cost us what we value most?
Nadia (Happy Lotus) said,
In order to welcome in something new, you have to get rid of the old. The emotional release is a way to do that. No one can heal you except yourself.
Stacey Hoffer (Create A Balance) said,
When we practice the art of life balance, we cannot practice the same way all the time from situation to situation. Our external environments are too powerful. Our internal compass needs to learn how to adapt.
Shamelle (Enhance Life) asks,
Things may be hard and difficult. Your mind has the ability to make it even harder!
Is heavy thinking ruining your life?
Sherri (Serene Journey) asks,
Have you ever thought life would be better ANYWHERE other than where you are right now?
Truth is some of your problems may go away once you have met all of your “if only’s” and “better when’s” but it won’t make the perfect life that fairy tales are made of.
Steven Aitchison said,
Recognizing and changing your way of thinking can be a long process depending on what patterns of thinking you employ and how badly you want to change. People can change, do change and change for the rest of their lives, I know I have, so don’t be thinking you’ll never be able to change, you can and you will if you really want to.
Steven Mills (Rat Race Trap) said,
No matter how close you are to someone, it is an illusion to think they truly understand you or you truly understand them. At some level you can share your experiences, but ultimately you are alone with your own experiences and you will get along better in life if you accept that and figure out what it means to you.
